    Tell me everything you know about Buddhism, then I tell you everything I know about Schopenhauer's philosophy; in the end, we compare. Or we just read away our respective ignorances by ourselves.

    I simply assumed you know about Buddhism and Jainism.

    His analysis of will led him to the conclusion that emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fully satisfied. The corollary of this is an ultimately painful human condition. Consequently, he considered that a lifestyle of negating desires.....
    I do not know how he arrived a the conclusion but the conclusions do seem to be the same. The answers to one's sufferings (painful human conditions) also have their similarities.

    Well if you are not in the mood...

    He got his ideas out of life and the Upanishads, which, he said, "have been the solace of my life and will be the solace of my death."

    I don't pick favorites, but I appreciate Saul Kripke for providing a sound and complete set of semantics for modal logic as a teenager.

    Heidegger for Being and Time, Sartre for Being and Nothingness as well as Nausea, and Nietzsche for practically everything he ever wrote. Ayn Rand is worth an honorable mention for being very interesting and charismatic to me, not to mention authoring what is possibly my favorite book (The Fountainhead); I do find her to be philosophically flawed, though, to put it rather mildly. I also really enjoyed what I read of Kierkegaard, but would need to read more of him before I could form a clear opinion on his works as a whole. Oh, and of course, Merleau-Ponty for his Phenomenology of Perception--a truly phenomenal book.

    Desire is the route that leads to suffering, yay Buddha

    I'm too stoned to be 'Zen'.

    ** it's true.

    MY favourite philospher, is Nike.

    'Just do it.'

    Like, wow!

    It gets me saying 'be like Nike right' because, here in the UK in this part of the world in my neck of the woods, Nike rhymes with the word like.
    So, I say
    "Be like Nike right and
    'Just Do It.'"
